“Being Aware” of Prosperity

The capacity to “know” you’re prosperous — even when you don’t yet feel like you are — is a particularly difficult facet of learning to attract riches.

It’s simple to feel like your efforts to attract what you want are futile when your external circumstances constantly reflecting the illusion of lack. But it’s precisely that anger that will keep you trapped in a never-ending loop of lack.

With the help of your strong will, you can release yourself from the prison of scarcity. To what end do you put your efforts towards fostering a state of scarcity?

How? – By giving it your whole attention and keeping it at the forefront of your mind at all times.

– By repeatedly recognizing its presence in your life.

How? – By bringing it up in conversation with other people.

– By taking on the world’s scarcity as your own.

The more you dwell on your own lack, the more of it you will feel drawn to seek out.

The good news is that by shifting your attention to the opposite end of the spectrum, you can utilize the same technique to bring wealth and success into your life.

Always keep plenty of money and success in your thoughts. But do so NOT from a position of lack, fear, or anxiety, but rather with the optimism, joy, and self-assurance born of knowing that everything you seek is already yours.

Repeat to yourself again and over that you are a magnet for wealth and that good fortune comes to you effortlessly.

It’s important to let other people know about the good things in your life. Instead of griping about the negatives, you should spread the positives and encourage those around you to do the same.

Focus on the vast resources available to you at all times. All the things, people, and good fortune in your life count, but so do the outward signs of prosperity you find in the world. Instead of being jealous of the wealthy, think of it as though the universe has held up a mirror to show you that YOU, too, can become wealthy and successful.

Most essential, cultivate the “knowing” that you have as much control over your level of success and happiness as you do over your level of failure and hardship.

Perhaps you don’t think you’ve actively chosen poverty and hardship for yourself (after all, who would? ), but it’s easy to make such a decision unconsciously. If you don’t actively work for financial success, you might as well sit in the trunk of your car and expect it to take you where you want to go. No, seriously, you have to DRIVE.

The following affirmation is one that can be repeated numerous times a day:

“I CHOOSE the harmonious flow of riches and abundance NOW because I am a powerful creator in my own right.”

You could feel dishonest at first, when you start speaking it. It’s because you don’t truly believe that you “know” such a thing to be true. But persist anyhow. Eventually, you will start to believe the affirmation you have been repeating to yourself if you keep saying it with an authoritative and confident tone.

And when it happens, you’ll see the changes in your external circumstances that bring you the success and fulfillment you “know” you deserve.

10 Ways to reduce the complexity of your usual life

The society in which we live is really hectic. I am sure you got it. There are a great deal of commitments that we are expected to fulfill. There is a great deal going on right now. Someone, somewhere, is constantly in need of something. There is a high probability that any opportunity you have to relax will be disrupted by another problem, wish, emergency, or distraction. There is little opportunity to relax and take some deep breaths. Think about this if you wish to keep things straightforward in your life…

  1. Figure Out What You Consider to Be Most Important

Knowing what is truly important is the first step in living a life that is simpler and more enjoyable. What aspects of your life do you prioritize? How would you describe the lifestyle of someone who lives a modest life? Writing down the top four to five objectives of your life and using that list as a guide might be a useful tool.

  1. Get rid of all the extra stuff

You and your dreams become stifled when you accumulate more and more stuff. When you have a lot of things, you also have a lot of things that need to be taken care of and worried about. Consider yourself a first-time buyer and examine any room in your house as though you were doing it for the first time. What can be ditched? What can be preserved? After that, get started on the process of decluttering.

  1. Establish Normal Daily Habits

It’s important to establish routines so that you can get things done while still having time to enjoy life. You should begin by identifying any activities or responsibilities that involve repeating the same steps. Make it a habit to develop routines that you can perform almost mindlessly. You will economize both time and effort as a result of this.

  1. It’s Ok to Say No

Saying “no” more often will help simplify your life, even if it hurts to let people down. It means you’ll have fewer commitments and more time to focus on what really matters. The ability to say “no” and mean it is a powerful tool in achieving success.

  1. Relish your time with those you care about

Life is easier — and, truth be told, more enjoyable — when you prioritize spending time with the people who matter the most to you. In other words, you shouldn’t abandon your loved ones. You need only identify who deserves your undivided attention.

  1. Cut ties with negative people in your life

Toxic friends, family, or partners can complicate our life more than anyone else. Remove the unnecessary complexity from your life by choosing not to participate in their drama. Try to spend as little time as possible in their company.

  1. Curb your online habits and usage time

A simple life does not consist of being constantly available via notifications, social media, or email. Although it may be challenging, it is important to find methods to minimize the disruption caused by your phone and email. One step in the right direction is to schedule times when you will check your email and social media accounts.

  1. Cut Down on Clothing Clutter

Probably only about 20% of your closet items get any actual use. Then why do you keep so many clothes that it’s difficult to find something to wear? It’s time to pare down your closet to a select few high-quality, versatile staples. Just think about how much more relaxed your mornings just got.

  1. To get the most out of your week, plan it out

The best method to streamline your week is to spend some time planning it out. It serves as a guide for your future actions. There will be no more time wasted wondering what to do next or rushing to finish off tasks you forgot about.

  1. Put an end to your striving for perfection

Paralyzing perfectionism is a real problem. You just freeze up. When we have a lot on our plates and it all seems too much, we tend to focus on the big picture and not on figuring out how to break it down into manageable chunks. then we end up sitting around doing nothing. There’s an African parable “How does one eat an elephant? One bite at a time.”

Dealing With Emotional Baggage

We’re all guilty of it. It appears in numerous forms. We carry them about with us, store them in the darkest recesses of our minds and souls. We have a large collection of recollections of them. It’s not uncommon for people to shed tears at the least provocation when they think about their loved ones. Others may be enraged, harbor profound animosity, and engage in anti-social or confrontational behavior as a result of this.

Many people are haunted by shadows, whether in their dreams or in the midst of the day. Anger out of control, which has the potential to escalate into violence, can strike at any time.

Others will remain in a state of denial, completely cut off from the rest of the world. It’s always someone else’s fault if something goes wrong for certain people; they blame everyone but themselves. What about the victims and the perpetrators of abuse?

Many people get disoriented while trying to locate something they cannot place. There’s something wrong. In schools, workplaces, and churches, a horde of lonesome faces line the streets, sit in public areas, and agonize throughout the day. It’s a constant reminder that we’re all in this together. Road rage is uncontrollable because our roadways are open channels for people to vent their grievances. Scary shit!

Excessive emotional baggage may be costly. When the weight of this responsibility becomes too heavy to carry, some people succumb to it. They see no need to continue the war. They find the world harsh and pointless, and life loses its luster. If there was ever a fight, it’s over for them.

There are many people who live their lives like a piece of driftwood, allowing the river to carry them wherever it will. Is it possible that our reality is so cruel?

What is the source of this emotional pain?

Broken dreams, failed relationships, lost hopes, betrayals, violations, childhood trauma or other types of trauma, contribute to the health concerns. Many of society and the family’s most vulnerable individuals are scarred emotionally by social humiliation and financial calamities, as well as poverty and addiction.

Is our fast-paced society to blame for this? To all of this, we may now add the quest for monetary gain, an unending supply of trinkets and devices, and the rapid advancement of technology. Emotional baggage from broken relationships, diminishing familial ties, and unrealistic expectations of oneself and others is piled on. Some people bear them for a long period.

Even if our bodily requirements are met, we may still find happiness if we take time to listen to our innermost desires. In most areas, there’s an overwhelming amount of resources available, including information, organizations, specialists, and more. Society and people who suffer from deep emotional pain can no longer overlook this crucial issue. 

There has been a revival or revision of wisdom from many civilizations and beliefs in order to fit in with today’s society. If you’re looking for a comprehensive approach, you’ll find it here.

Medical and technological advances are astounding, but just swallowing a pill isn’t always the best course of action.

Determine how much emotional baggage you carry around with you.

You’re Stopping You!

“Have you ever had a great idea but didn’t follow through on it? If you identify as a “perfect” human being, you have. I’m not talking about anything extravagant. There’s nothing earth-shattering here. Simply said, it was an excellent concept that would have generated you more money. But you didn’t do anything about it. Speaking from experience here!

Full confession I’ve let many ideas remain as just that ideas. I’m the kind of person who thinks deeply and creatively. I’ve always had an ability to understand clients and come up with unique solutions for them. However, I must admit that I personally don’t feel I’m particularly successful. That’s due in large part  because I’m certainly not where I want it to be. 

The irony is that I have more fantastic ideas for growing my business. The issue is that I’ve not put many of them into action. 

So, how about you?

Have you have more ideas than you do actions? Why don’t you simply get started?

I became curious as to why I was operating the way I do, and began doing a lot of intraspection.

I started considering what it was that was preventing me from acting on ideas or plans that may result in substantial rewards?

These are some of the basic reasons I found.

1. A lack of an inspirational and compelling goal

The lack of a why is referred to as Purpose. Without a solid purpose, the urgent takes precedence. The build up of emails in the mailbox takes over. The call from a friend for help takes over. Inertia takes control.

We learn in physics that it takes more energy to break away from inertia. That energy is added by a strong aim. The energy that organizes your efforts and brings the most essential things to the forefront. You need an inspirational purpose to break free from the shackles of your existing routine.

2. Lack of a clear view

Consider yourself at a six-way stop in a fog so dense that you can’t see a single landmark. Even the traffic signs are incomprehensible to you. Which path will you take? Will you be confident in your choice of direction, or will you continue cautiously, expecting for the fog to clear before picking up the pace?

Everyone—at least everyone in business—wishes to go someplace. However, without a clear vision, it is impossible to see where you wish to go. And if you don’t see it, how will you act boldly and confidently toward it—whatever it is?

So, even if you have a strategy to get you…somewhere, you’re unlikely to carry it through. 

3. Unwilling to make sacrifices or put in the effort

You already have a lot on your plate, and anything additional you take on means something will have to be sacrificed. Sacrifice entails giving up something valuable in exchange for something even more valuable. That suggests there is something more precious to give up for. And you haven’t said what that “something” is. Or maybe you’re not convinced it’s worth it.

I began to place giving up leisure time, relaxing time, play time, or whatever in the same category. But it always comes down to sacrifice, and the key question is whether or not it’s worthwhile. (guilty as charged) There are moments when I feel I have something essential to do, but it isn’t important enough to get me to drop other “priorities”. 

4. Lack of faith

If you are positive that something will work, there is no danger, and you will most likely act. On the other hand, if you are uncertain—and most things are to some extent uncertain—you may ask if the risk is worthwhile.

Perhaps ‘it’ will work in someone else’s hands, but you don’t think it will work in yours. In other words, you lack faith in your ability to do the task, and the danger is too large.

Each of these concerns may be solved by having a strong purpose and inspirational goals to work toward. When these are powerful enough, they increase the potential benefit and shift the risk-return ratio in favor of action.

5th. Fear

It all boils down to fear at times, and this was the elephant in the room for me. You have a vision and a goal, and you believe the risks are manageable. But what happens if it doesn’t work out? What happens next? That’s what fear is. It’s not going to turn out the way you want it to. So, what will you be left with? Worse, not only will it not work out, but something negative will occur as a result of it.

6. All the other stuff

You simply have other commitments. What do you mean? Family or maybe a job. Thing is could some of it be eliminated or placed on hold?

It comes down to balancing what you have goin on with your purpose and aspirations.

You may need to refocus your priorities and rethink your alternatives in order to devote your available time and energy to pushing you on the right path.

So, how about you?

What’s holding you back? Any one of these six things, or a combination of them, can hold you back. It’s much simpler to confront and move forward after you have identified what is holding you back. 

People Don’t Always Want Your Advice!

Yes, this can be consituted as “advice”! Now read and keep an open mind.

Frequently, throughout our encounters with family and friends, the subject of troubles that they are experiencing would undoubtedly come up. Inevitably, in our efforts to be helpful, we frequently respond by offering suggestions on how to resolve the problem.

The following are some of the reasons why this is not commonly recommended:

We make the assumption that we know what the problem is and neglect to be a good listener, this limits the amount of  information about the situation and the other person’s perspective.

Many of us fail to express empathy for the plight of the other person.

We are given ‘credit’ for providing the advice since the guidance is likely to be based on something that the adviser has done or something that others have done that has been effective. When someone does not succeed, or if they have tried it previously but failed, the inference is that it was not because the advise was bad, but rather because the person has not implemented it properly. The advisee is likely to feel foolish and inept as a result of this.

When we provide counsel, it can appear that we are speaking ‘down’ to the other person because we have assumed the position of ‘expert.’ We’re so anxious to chat and demonstrate our knowledge and ‘wisdom’ that we fail to interact with the other person on a ‘equal’ level with ourselves.

In the process of becoming an expert, we may forget that the other person has information that we may benefit from as well.

We are sending the message that we believe the individual will be unable to figure out the answer on his or her own. In this case, the other person feels disempowered.

We are dismissive of the person’s efforts, which we believe are insufficient. As a result, rather than assisting the individual in self-evaluation, we take on the role of evaluator of their actions.

Another option is to listen intently, avoiding offering any level of advice, UNLESS that advice is explicitely asked for. Instead, asking questions during conversation is more beneficial since it encourages the other person to think through the challenges that they are experiencing.
